In these talks Fr Laurence explains how meditation can help us realise the essential message of Jesus: ‘Whoever wants to save their life must lose it, but whoever loses their life for my sake will find it.’ (Mt 16:25) To discover our true self is the goal of life; but finding our true self requires first laying aside all those familiar superficial layers of personal identity which are illusory and therefore false. Meditation is a way of transcending or demolishing the false self. As we take our attention off ourselves in meditation and focus our attention on Jesus, we lose ourselves and are found in him. This is a transforming experience that changes our view of meaning and values. It changes our life.
These talks were given at a retreat in New South Wales, Australia, in 2017.
